“the real treat here is Schenkelberg herself."

- Jacob Davis, Chicago Critic

Cathy Schenkelberg in Squeeze My Cans

“You can sing and act next lifetime. If we don't clear this planet there won't be a planet to sing and act on!"  - Typical cult logic

The scoop:

This show is more than just an audition to be Tom Cruise's girlfriend.  It is a trip down a volcanic rabbit hole, however the carrot labeled “spiritual freedom” eerily transformed into an a bit of an alien concept. “I’m lucky to be here and healthy.” Her introduction to the cult was innocent enough. “Many of the people who went as far as I did in the Church, lost everything: family, friends, homes, bank accounts, identities and their actual lives.”


The Church of $cientology had actress Cathy Schenkelberg for 14 years of her young, adult life. It took another 5 years for her to escape in the face of harassing phone calls, midnight knocks on her door by “outreach” staffers, an expensive custody battle and social rejection. 


In her original solo show Squeeze My Cans, Cathy shares a glimpse behind the velvet curtain of this strangely hilarious and unbelievably horrifying story of loss, isolation, manipulation and the relentless power of survival through persistance and humor.
